Divide it Right…






 Study and be eager and do your utmost to present yourself to God approved (tested by trial), a workman who has no cause to be ashamed, correctly analyzing and accurately dividing [rightly handling and skillfully teaching] the Word of Truth 2 Tim. 2:15 amp.

Maybe you are like me and have often wondered, “What can I do to show God how much I really want to please Him?”

In the second letter to Timothy, Paul helps us to see what brings pleasure to the heart of God.   Is it not those who labor in His Word to gain knowledge and wisdom?  Who can skillfully handle truth and have proven it to be true in the trials of life?

Yes, these are the ones in whom He delights, the ones he calls his “Approved”. 

Press in precious saints of God.  Let nothing keep you from becoming a seeker of truth and a workman of the Word.   The blessing of the Lord will follow you all the days of your life.

Project 365- My week in pictures






My sweet hubby came home from work bearing gifts.  My favorite, a chocolate snowball.  I’ll miss these soon.



I asked Grace to water the plants, after she was finished she got a little carried away!



We were surprised to see this sign posted on our neighborhood bulletin board.  Oh well, that is living in Louisiana. Yikes!



My beautiful Kayla.  I love her in purple!



Grace and the girls hosted a fashion show for me.  I’d have to say this was one of my favorite outfits.




We had a girls weekend.  Oh I how I love spending time with my granddaughters!



It was a very hot Sunday.  The girls wanted to cool off.  They had such a great time playing in the sprinkler.

Project 365-My Week In Pictures






My precious little Cole having fun in his tree house.  Not hard to catch him smiling!




Karli having fun on her swing.  She’s a big girl now…Grammy does not have to push her anymore.



I went over to show my neighbor my new camera.  She wanted to try it out and took this action shot of her dog Macy.



Loved the shadow of our magnolia tree on the fence.




My wonderful hubby out in his tool room.  Yes, there are always so many projects to do around the house.



Strawberry Shortcake.  One of my very favorite cakes.  Oh my…!


Cole's party

We celebrated Cole’s second birthday in a really big way.  Can you tell how much we love our team?

Sweet Shot Tuesday



Enjoyed a wonderful Sunday with my daughter-in-love, and three grands.  As always, I got the girls to sit and pose.  They are so patient with their aspiring photographer to be - Grammy! 















Had to catch my grandson on the run, but love that smile that simply melts my heart.

Project 365-My Week In Pictures





My precious granddaughter Grace Kelly modeling for her Grammy!



My sweet Sister Mary Grace came out to visit and blessed me with this beautiful bouquet of flowers.



Jordan and I enjoying a beautiful morning on the backyard swing before it got too hot.




Game day!  What an exciting day for our WORLD Champion New Orleans Saints!  And yes we beat the Vikings once again!  My son (center) and two of his friends decked out in their Saints gear.  The “Who Dat Nation” is here to stay.  Can anyone say…REPEAT?




My precious grandson smiling for his Grammy.  He knows he can have anything with that smile.



Grace and her friend Anna Claire playing at the park.  They are just too cute for words.




I needed my plants watered and found a very willing volunteer.  Kayla jumped in her rain boots and got right to work.  She did such a GREAT job helping her Grammy.

Raising Sons…What NOT to do


Marriage Monday




Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him.

Psalm 127:3


As the mother of five sons over the years I've learned many things about the male gender.  

The mother-son relationship is a dynamic one, and because of it I have come to appreciate a world that would of seemed foreign to me.

Now having said this, I must add raising sons has also been a tiny major challenge.  These guys have kept me on my toes and on my knees.

So...in response to this subject I have some things I can advise that you should not expect from sons.



  • Do not expect your sons to notice your new hair style, outfit, furnishings in your home, or any major changes.  (sorry ladies this isn’t one of their strengths!)


  • Do not expect them to stay clean, or  willing to take a bath without some resistance.


  • Do not expect them to keep their rooms tidy or organized. ( Having fun is a much higher priority )


  • Do not expect them to like getting their hair cut.  (Some guys never out grow this. )





(as you can see 2 of my sons have not seen a barber in a while!)


  • Do not expect them to just sit around quietly and read or color.   Boys are born with a ton of energy they must burn off each day.




  • Do not expect them not to be non-competitive.  Forget it ladies, it’s built in.


  • Do not expect them to remember your birthday or special occasions.  A gentle reminder is usually called for!


  • Do not expect them to grow up.  Boys will always be boys!

Of course, this is not characteristic of all my sons or guys in general, but for the most part it’s pretty much their nature.

Actually, my sons are all so unique and have blessed my life in too many ways to mention.  If you would like to learn more about them I did a post here.

I love each one of them and I'm so grateful.  I personally feel privileged to be the mother of five sons.  Raising boys and watching them grow into fine young men has been one of life's greatest treasures.

And now at this season of my life, I've  been  blessed with three beautiful granddaughters.  Gosh...it just doesn't get better then this!
